I need to configure all of our XP computers to sleep after a few hours of inactivity. Doing this from control panel is easy, but I'd like to avoid having to visit each desk individually. Is there any way to do this remotely?

True inactivity? For example some programs like movie players prevent that even if there is inactivity. –  hakre Apr 29 '12 at 10:02
